Well, this is it, a quick snapshot of the finished art quilt project; I hung it up in the livingroom to get an idea of how it looked when I was done. Clearly, I will need a professional photographer to take a decent picture!!
But this gives you the idea, and it’s largely straight; at least, it looks straighter in real-life than in this photo.
I turned this in to the Tucson Quilters Guild last week, thus meeting the deadline for submissions for this weekend’s Quilt Fiesta quilt show at the Tucson Convention Center. This is last week’s news, I guess, but last week I think it’s fair to say the whole city was really preoccupied and stunned by the mass shooting. Anyway. It would be nice to get a ribbon at this weekend’s show; but, I’ve sold my pieces whether they’ve won ribbons or not so I’m not too worried about it.
Here are some highlights:
I just ordered some silk organza, soda ash and urea (chemicals for dyeing) and some fabric dye from Dharma Trading, THE best source for fiber art supplies; it all should arrive by Thursday, so this Saturday I can get started on my next project, which will have something to do with prickly pear cactus.

This is a lovely quilt. Your colors are amazing. I like the way you laid out the flower stems symetrically but let the flower heads be more relaxed in position. Nice work. I also use Dharma Trading for dyes and supplies. They rock!!
Thanks so much for your kind words; I wish you could see this piece in person, not just digitally. I love that color scheme. I could work in it forever.
